Kean And Gbamin Excited By Proposed New Stadium Plans
New Everton signings Moise Kean and Jean-Philippe Gbamin have both underlined their desire to shine at the Club’s proposed new stadium after taking a virtual reality (VR) tour of Bramley-Moore Dock.
The two players penned five-year deals when completing transfers last week, keeping them at Goodison Park until at least June 2024. Everton plan to move to a new iconic 52,000-capacity home on the city’s waterfront and expect to submit a planning application before the end of this year. Building of the proposed stadium is expected to take approximately three years from the granting of planning permission.
Prior to their media press conferences on Tuesday, the duo enjoyed a fly-through tour of the proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock using VR goggles.
Over the past two weeks, people visiting The People’s Project
consultation roadshow – which is taking place across the city region until 25 August – have also had the chance to take the VR tour, find out more about the proposed new stadium and Goodison Park Legacy Project, and have their say on the plans in a survey.
Ivory Coast international Gbamin, 23, said: “You can feel the ambition at the heart of the Club, a real desire to grow the Club and take it to the highest level.
“We sense that big ambition as players.
“I would love to be able to play at the new stadium. I have seen the virtual reality tour and how good it looks and it gives you a desire to play there for real.”
Italy international Kean, signed from Juventus, added: “The new stadium shows how the Club is looking to the future. I am looking ahead, too, and my ambition fits with that of Everton.”
